webOS Homebrew Project
Welcome to webOS Homebrew Project!
We are a community surrounded around homebrew (unofficial software) development for LG webOS Smart TV platform.
What Does It Do?¶
Our main points of interest are:
- Building an unofficial native app toolchain
- Reverse engineering and documenting native system APIs and other undocumented features
- Maintaining an independent repository of unofficial applications and development tools
- Building, porting and maintaining pieces of software for the platform, for example:
Currently, the easiest method of enjoying homebrew software on webOS is using Homebrew Channel, which is automatically installed when using RootMyTV exploit. Homebrew Channel is a user friendly unofficial "application store".
Keep in mind this has a downside of requiring "Developer Mode Session" renewal in "Developer Mode" every 48 hours. Alternatively, if you are technically profficient, machine in a local network can periodically refresh the token for you using a script like one of these.
Repository of webOS homebrew applications can be viewed on the web on https://repo.webosbrew.org. The same repository is also accessible in Homebrew Channel app by default.
